1992 | PG | 94mins | AUSTRALIA | D: Baz Luhrmann

The film that launched director Baz Luhrmann and his designer wife Catherine Martin onto the world stage is a flurry of feather and sequin, eminently quotable and as much fun as the first time you saw it.

"Strictly Ballroom is one of the most popular Australian films ever made. A smash hit on home soil and a considerable success everywhere else it was released, Baz Luhrmann’s debut ranks 6th on the all-time box-office chart for Australian movies with a domestic gross of $21.76 million (March 2008 figures). Evolved from a 30-minute play Luhrmann first devised and staged in 1986, the story of a young rebel triumphing over conservative old fuddy-duddies is nothing new but the execution is so colourful and eccentric it hardly matters. With the crucial contributions of costume designer Angus Strathie, production designer Catherine Martin, choreographer John 'Cha Cha’ O’Connell and cinematographer Steve Mason, Luhrmann creates a universe in which only dance exists." -Richard Kuipers, Australian Screen Online

A range of portraiture of performers Paul Mercurio, Tara Morice and Barry Otto from photographer Philip Le Masurier taken on the set of Strictly Ballroom (1992)can be found in the exhibition Starstruck: Australian Movie Portraits at the National Portrait Gallery Nov 11 2017 to March 12 2018.
